Mogul Mowgli (2020)

Drama, Captioned 1h 30m

Zed (Riz Ahmed) is a British Pakistani rapper on the cusp of international success, using his cutting lyrics to confront identity politics with a blistering energy. Forced to suddenly abandon his career and return home by a debilitating illness, Zed’s vulnerability and his decreased mobility bring a new focus on family truths in a heady, fevered and intense reflection on personal memory, realised history and cultural heritage. A rare and confrontational take on the British South-Asian experience, Mogul Mowgli sees director Bassam Tariq combine visceral filmmaking with a vital, personal and impactful performance from the multifaceted Ahmed.
